On October 5th , around 120 friends from the village and beyond came together in the Community Centre to enjoy an evening of wonderful authentic Sri Lankan dishes, including a variety of curries – chicken, cashew nut, bean, cabbage, fried potato, chick pea, aubergine as well as daal, raita, mango chutney and chilli coconut sambal and not to forget the pudding of fresh fruit salad – a feast by anyone’s standard!
We are very grateful to the group of volunteers who came to help to prepare the food for the evening but our main thanks must go to Kumari, Shriani, Sidney and Ailsa for cooking the various tasty dishes. The event could not have happened without these wonderful people.
And the evening would not have been complete without the usual raffle and (in)famous quiz and auction! Thanks to Ordrith and team for selling raffle tickets, Robert for preparing and organising the quiz and everyone for participating in the auction and especially to Gareth for showing us all how it should be done!!

Sunday morning saw a group of local residents plant crocus bulbs on the triangle in Llangors. 500 bulbs were given by Brecon Rotary Club to plant in the village, to help raise awareness of the efforts made to eradicate Polio across the world. This is a national campaign and thousands of crocus bulbs have been planted around the country (Purple4Polio Campaign).

Llangors Youth and Community Centre is proud to support Hay, Brecon and Talgarth Sanctuary for Refugees (HBTSR). The charity provides important ‘Respite Days’ for people living in South Wales, mainly in Swansea but also in Newport and Cardiff, as well as Syrian families who have been housed in Powys under the Government’s Resettlement Scheme. People seeking sanctuary have fled from war, torture and/or persecution in their own country and many will face ongoing hardships in Wales with a risk of falling into poverty or homelessness.
